Why Do I Need to Clean My Gutters? The simple answer is that it could end up costing you thousands of dollars if you don’t. Gutters carry rainwater from your roof down the side of your home and away from the foundation – the further away, the better chance you have of avoiding flooding and problems with the foundation. When gutters get filled with leaves and other elements, the water has nowhere to escape. If it backlogs, you could end up with water inside your home, which can create mold. Because it freezes during the winter, it’s even more essential your gutters are cleaned biannually. Icicles may be fun to look at, but they can cost you a lot of money if you’re looking at them on your home. Gutters are designed to prevent icicles from forming on the edge of your roof line, which can cause damage to your shingles. If too much water builds up, you’ll have water splashing through your roof and into your home in no time!Read more...
REASONS TO HIRE A PROFESSIONAL ROOFER:
1. It will probably cost less: that may sound counter-intuitive: you undertake DIY projects because you want to save a little money however if you mess up your DIY roof repair then have to hire a contractor anyway and you are going to spend twice as much.
2.Quick Turnaround: It might take you several weeks or months to complete the project once you begin. During that time you are leaving your home and roof deck vulnerable to damage from weather, wind, rain, and even the harsh sun.
3.Personal Safety: Roofs are inherently dangerous places. People get injured from ladder-related injuries in the US every year. Blindauer Sheet Metal and Roofing, Inc. has the necessary safety equipment to ensure our workers are protected while they are climbing ladders, taking bulky materials up and down from the roof and performing roof repairs.
